....this Merlot gets a voluptuous boost from Syrah (15%). Pretty aromas of Chelan cherry and Red Vines licorice pick up complex hints of black olive, sage and minerality. The structure of the drink is smooth and medium bodied with plum and dark blueberry flavors, finished by dark chocolate and Western serviceberry.

“Wine of the Week”

Chateau Ste. Michelle 2011 Canoe Ridge Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Horse Heaven Hills

Opaque; the color of black plum skin but with a clear red mantle. The body yields blueberries, black currant, toasted cedar, and baking spice, plus a whiff of brushy herbs. Velvety tannins smooth the way toward a deep, plummy finish. Ready now.

Chateau Ste. MIchelle 2011 Ethos Syrah Columbia Valley

This opaque and midnight blue colored Syrah from Washington State was one of our top three Syrahs discovered in our recent Big Blind tasting. It opens with a mild blackberry pie bouquet with hints of oak and pencil shavings. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, smooth and silky. The flavor profile is a gentle smoky oak and black licorice blend with hints of black currant, minerality and a dash of cinnamon. The finish is pleasant, dry and its moderate tannins are well managed. The panel suggested pairing this Syrah with veal scallopini and German chocolate cake. Enjoy - KWGTP

Chateau Ste. Michelle 2012 Cold Creek Chardonnay Columbia Valley

Pure aromas of fresh apricot, nectarine and citrus blossom complicated by vanilla and toast notes. White peach and citrus fruit flavors are complemented by spicy oak and nicely framed by bright, harmonious acidity. This fine-grained, smooth Chardonnay boasts lovely depth and inner-mouth tension. The firm, slowly mounting finish shows lovely salty length and grip. No hurry to drink this excellent Chardonnay. -- Stephen Tanzer

Chateau Ste. Michelle 2012 Ethos Reserve Chardonnay Columbia Valley

Bright, full yellow. Inviting aromas of ripe peach, hazelnut, brown spices and smoky oak, with a pungent touch of pineapple coming up with air. Rich, lush, broad and dry, with a savory umami character to the stone fruit and spice flavors. Plenty of smoky oak here. I wanted a bit more sweetness but like the finishing firmness brought by late-arriving elements of lemon peel and minerals. (An earlier bottle of equal quality showed slightly oily, more fruit-driven flavors, sexy yeasty nuances and a plusher texture.) -- Stephen Tanzer

Chateau Ste. Michelle 2011 Ethos Reserve Syrah Columbia Valley

Healthy bright ruby. Candied blueberry, black raspberry and licorice on the nose, along with a whiff of peppery reduction. On the palate, the dark fruit flavors are joined by chocolate, coffee, Brazil nut and game, giving this rather dense wine a seamless quality and a touch of warmth. Medicinal, chewy, tongue-dusting tannins build on the back end, keeping the wine’s sweetness in check. An adult style of Syrah, and worth another look in a few years. -- Stephen Tanzer

Chateau Ste. MIchelle 2011 Artist Series Meritage Columbia Valley

Healthy dark red. Bright, inviting aromas of currant, black cherry and woodsmoke; high-quality oak here! Silky and fine-grained, with terrific spicy complexity and restrained sweetness to the flavors of cherry, raspberry, smoke and graphite minerality. Tightly wound and light on its feet, showing less fat than the 2010 bottling but excellent definition and energy. This elegant, long wine features fine-grained tannins and terrific lift. Balanced from the start and built for a graceful evolution in bottle. -- Stephen Tanzer
